Scooter Libby Resigns: why resigned rather than fired?

I can’t believe Lewis “Scooter” Libby managed to resign before he was fired. What would it take for the Bush administration to actually fire someone? Is there any leadership at all in the White House?

Cheney Adviser Resigns After Indictment – Yahoo! News: “Vice President
Dick Cheney’s chief of staff resigned Friday after he was indicted on charges of obstructing a grand jury investigation and lying about his actions that blew the CIA cover of an Iraq war critic’s wife.”

Of course, the current administration isn’t the only group showing a severe lack of leadership in the face of incompetence and/or criminality among their staff: The New York Times still hasn’t fired Judith Miller.
